Abstract (en)

The machine is intended for the assembly of mushroom-shaped stoppers which comprise a shank (A) of cork and a head (B) of plastics, wood or equivalent material. The machine basically comprises: a first endless conveyor (26) provided with equidistant pairs of opposing jaws (78) capable of gripping the successive heads (B) at the beginning of a path and of releasing them at the end of the path; an adhesive-dispenser (20) capable of depositing a measure of adhesive on the bottom of a seat of each head (B); a second endless conveyor (28) movable continuously in synchronism with the first conveyor (26) and provided with equidistant pairs of opposing jaws (118) capable of gripping successive shanks (A) laterally, taking them from a feeder (24) at a point downstream of the adhesive-dispenser (20), and of transporting the shanks (A), over a successive portion of the path, into a position aligned above the seat of a corresponding head (B); and a pressure device (30) which engages the shanks (A) and gradually inserts them into the seats of the heads (B) and then keeps them in a position pressed into those seats until, along the path, the measure of adhesive has set. <IMAGE>
